Of course I do respect the Catholic Church and how much the priests preach the Faith in the Word of God. But when the Catholic church begins to meddle in the affairs of State and Government business, it's time to tell them in words they can understand: Stay the hell out of American politics and business.
Here's a reason why I said that:
The Catholic church must NOT and I repeat, must NOT support the unions. Even if it's just the voice of one bishop saying this. Especially after all the irresponsible and mismanaged years by the Unions of taking money from the State and Federal governments to support their workers and problems have increased every year. Now the Unions want to protect those "worker benefits" that they have gained so much over the years. They don't care if their state or nation is in a bad economic recession. One example is the on going fight in Wisconsin Government and many cities that rally in support of the union. But how wrong, irresponsible, and misinformed the people are.
I praise Governor Walker for standing up to the union leaders. Businesses must take a stand as well against the unions. States, Federal, and Businesses are all dealing with their financial issues at this present age of time. Unions have better get used to it. The days of stealing the gold eggs that "the golden goose" has laid are way past already. It's time the unions get in touch with the reality of financial life in USA.
So if the Bishop that wrote that opinion in the CNN belief blog, I'd tell the Pope to please boot him OUT OF HIS OFFICE! No priest has a right to support the unions. But they should be praying for our nation to recover from this economic mess in which now, there may be no hope at all.

There is a measure that could punish the 17 democrats who remain out of the Wisconsin assembly in an effort to prevent the quorum from being held.
Also: Ohio became the first state to vote on an ANTI-union measure: Link: http://www.cnn.com/2011/POLITICS/03/02/ohio.budget/index.html?hpt=T2
Meanwhile, some shocking news about the Washington, DC Metro System.
So take heart, my deaf and disabled friends! If you go riding anywhere on any bus or subway, or any type of major transportation, don't use your electronic devices in the major cities. Crime is up and people are stealing stuff from people that they can PAWN them fast as they can at the local pawn shops.
Please, when you ride any bus, subway, or other transportation in any city (not just DC alone), please be aware of people around you at all times. Thank you!
Until next post, I'll clue you in later.
